Default HD Omega Striker 7.1 Header Problem

Went to install the Chassis Front Panel Audio connector on a HD Omega Striker 7.1 Sound Card. While pushing on the connector, I noticed that pins were being pushed out of the header on the Soundcard. Further inspection showed that 2 of the pins hadn't been soldered during the manufacturing process, also the color of the Solder on the rest of the Header's Pins indicate that the Solder was actually colder when applied, compared to all the other Solder Joints on the Card.

The effected pins are:

Pin 2 - Ground
Pin 3 - Bias (MIC Power)

I resoldered the Header and all is well. I posted this, just in case some Purchasers of this card were not able to get Headsets to work when plugged into their Chassis's Audio Connectors due to this problem.
